xXI Sinatra Shot YouXx

"We Rat Pack n***as, let Sam tap dance on you/
Then, I Sinatra shot ya God damn you//"
- Jay-Z, "Threat"

Here's a poster design that ended up the chopping block, that I did for an event that's being held in LA this Sunday. It's a type of elegant affair so it called for a very Rat Pack inspired poster. Although it didn't work out, I still got the experience of working out in Illustrator with it. Plus, I did this join the span of a day that it was SUPPOSED to be due on some short notice ish. I'm definitely not throwing it away.

Also as a further treat...
HEY KIDS! It's another SPEEDCOMIC video!
...I mean the poster isn't technically a comic but still, it's just....just watch the damn thing.

And yes I was watching NCIS while working it. Can you blame me? It's a great show!

And with that, I'm Ghost...face

Musiq Soulchild - Feel The Real

Having been working with R&B artist Musiq Soulchild for almost two years now on his side projects (The Husel/Pwonda Love, and his top secret animation project), I was given the task to do the art and design for his eight studio album Feel The Real. The direction he wanted to go in for the album was dealing with the idea of emojis and wanted specific ones designed for each of the 24 songs on the double disc album. He also wanted the look of the design to feel like a text message but also still incorporated the denim feel continuing from his previous album Life On Earth. So here's a look at the design of the album booklet along with the 24 emojis as well.

Feel The Real is available on iTunes and in Best Buy and Target now!
